Ten people have been charged after Canberra police seized drugs and froze millions of dollars worth of assets as part of a major drug trafficking investigation.
ACT Policing said officers nabbed nearly three kilograms of illegal drugs with an estimated street value of more than $640,000 under a six-week crackdown on the manufacture, trafficking and sale of illicit drugs.
They also seized 55 cannabis plants with a street value of more than $250,000 and hydroponic systems when they uncovered a clandestine grow house in Fraser.
Police restrained two residences and seven vehicles valued at roughly $1.8 million and more than $600,000 in cash as proceeds of crime.
ACT Policing said in a statement it carried out 46 search warrants over six weeks and said 10 people would face the ACT Magistrates Court charged with drug trafficking offences and dealing with the proceeds of crime.
One man had been extradited to New South Wales to face a murder charged as part of the probe and several more would be summonsed to court on drug-related offences, police said.
Detective Acting Superintendent Marcus Boorman said ACT Policing had zero tolerance towards the supply of illicit drugs.
"Our message is simple, if you are a manufacturer, distributor or trafficker of illicit drugs, we are targeting you, knocking on your door, seizing your assets and putting you before court," he said.
Detective Acting Superintendent Boorman said the operation, which was linked to the Crimestoppers Dob in a Dealer campaign, had been an excellent result.
"Since the beginning of the Dob in a Dealer campaign, ACT Policing has received a substantial amount of information from the public relating to illicit drugs," he said.
"It is your community, you know when suspicious activity is happening in your neighbourhood and when something is out of place."
Crime Stoppers ACT chairman Bryan Roach said the Dob in a Dealer campaign reminded the community "every piece of information is important".
"If you have any information on the manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs you can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report via the ACT Crime Stoppers website.
"Rewards of up to $1000 may apply, information can be provided anonymously," Mr Roach said.
